On Thursday morning the Animal Rescue League of Boston’s (ARL) Twitter feed read, “Oh deer! Our team was in Bedford again, this time to rescue a deer that fell thru the ice in the Concord River.”

After their Wednesday visit to Fawn Lake to rescue the swans that got stuck in the ice, ARL  returned the next day to rescue a deer that had slipped off the ice into the Concord River. According to Twitter, although the doe was becoming weak and tired in the water, she scampered off into the woods upon being rescued.

The Animal Rescue League of Boston is a non-profit organization that “receives no funding from the state, cities, or towns to provide emergency rescue assistance for injured animals and rely entirely on donations to help animals when they need it most” according to Ami Bowen, Director of Communications.  Click https://www.arlboston.org to learn more about Animal Rescue League of Boston.
